I must admit I was a bit tempted by the Belgium game, but the favourite is away from home and whilst i am sure they will win well, the goal stats are not good enough so leaving alone today
No trades today. Lots of tempters, like PSG, Chester and various others. But none of them are perfect picks so I have decided to play safe and leave Betfair trading alone completely for today.
Well, I didn’t do Grimsby as it just seemed a little overpriced. It was 1-0 after 6 minutes though, so maybe I should have! Oh well, you takes yer choices
Well lots of possibles but not quite good enough today. There is only one which looks good enough to trade, Grimsby v Ebbsfleet. See stats – http://uk.soccerway.com/matches/2013/02/26/england/conference-national/grimsby-town-fc/ebbsfleet-united-fc/1311705/head2head/ This looks good, but not excellent. The problem is the price. At 4.9 the draw is in my view too pricey. It is one of those I won’t make my mind up on until closer to KO, possibly waiting to see if I can watch some of the game. If I can, and Grimsby look dominant from the start, I will get in below 4.5. If not, I won’t.
Well, i was called out to a friend in need shortly before the game. I had an alarm on my phone so knew the game had started. I managed to get online at his house briefly and saw it was 1-0 by 20 minutes of play, and i was trying to get out on a weird looking betfair website, no exchange, just a bookie service so I couldn’t trade out until i worked out how to get the exchange up, by which time the other team had bloody equalised! SO typical! Anyway, i hung on then and waited til 1-3 and took £60 green, not breaking any records but good …
Sparta Rotterdam v Den Bosch – I was unsure about this, the away team don’t concede a lot and the current form of both teams doesn’t make it the best trade ever, but I have decided @ 4.3 its a fair price and worthy of a trade. I have laid the draw at 4.3
Well two nice evening LTD picks there. Elche scored nice and early but the stats are so good I am waiting for a second to hopefully get more profit from that trade. Athletico Madrid – just scored also, so took a quick £80 green, not chancing any more risk on that one as Espanyol are a capable team and don’t concede a lot usually. Happy to be out with some green there. Update: Well that was hairy. Was about to exit for a £250 loss when Elche finally got another goal. PHEW! Turned a mediocre day into a good one. £220 greened for the day 🙂 …
